Climbing, sprawling, or trailing tender perennials have twining stems and triangular to ovate leaves. Tubular flowers, borne singly in leaf axils, flare at the mouth like snapdragon (Antirrhinum, a close relative). Often grown as an annual; plants from early sowings will bloom in late spring and through the summer. Grow on a trellis, in window boxes or hanging baskets, or as ground cover. Need good drainage.
